We're crazy in love with these new faces
By Joseph Tenni
Isa Asklof
Swedish siren Isa Asklof is a Virgo on a mission. After recent sittings for Bon, Another, Italian Vogue and Volt, as well as a sashay down Christopher Kane's runway, the striking Viking is poised for world domination.

Born in Australia of Lithuanian, Saudi and Pakistani descent, Shanina has a look that defines global beauty. After getting her start on a model TV show, Shanina is now in New York and already getting a warm welcome. The Aquarian’s star is set to rise.

Magdalena Fiolka
A finalist in Ford’s recent Supermodel of the World contest, Polish Piscean Magdalena Fiolka is new to the scene, but she's already shot for Italian Amica twice and, at the spring shows, walked for Antonio Marras and Mila Schon in Milan. Look for a lot more of Magdalena in 2009.

Rachel Ballinger
Native New Yorker Rachel Ballinger isn't holding back. The brassy brunette has shot for i-D and recently with Vanina Sorrenti for Iceberg. The new year will be hers.

Rose Cordero
Caribbean Queen Rose Cordero is the Grace Jones of a new generation. Fresh to New York, the 16-year-old Afrodite from the Dominican Republic already has massive buzz—clearly. She's the Next Big Thing, for sure.

Georgia Fowler
Jetsetting Gemini Georgia Fowler is on fire. The trailblazing teen from New Zealand just finished shooting for Another and British Vogue. Unstoppable!

Diandra Forrest
From the mean streets of the Bronx comes the albino angel Diandra Forrest. Signed to Elite only about two weeks ago, the lithe Libran was discovered while shopping in Manhattan. We have a feeling her beyond-the-pale look will send shockwaves at the fall collections.
